History

Origin of Maverick

From the "Origin of Words:" Samuel Maverick owned a cattle ranch on an island in Texas. All the ranchers in Texas branded their cattle to distinguish them from the other ranches. Since Samuel owned all the cattle on the island, he refused to brand them--a Maverick became known as an unbranded calf. Webster defines maverick as "Being independent in thought and action or exhibiting such independence." The Mavericks were born. Other Mavericks include the Western TV series and movie, "Maverick;" Olympic supplier of Maverick beef, sold at Publix; the most notorious big-wave break in the world, Mavericks, offshore, near San Francisco; and our first Christmas card from a Maverick, "We dance to the beat of a different drummer."
